LP Artwork: Ella

This album had a relatively short shelf life after its release in 1969. It was one of the few recordings Ella made in London, and one of two for Reprise Records.

Moreover, it was the only album of hers produced by Richard Perry and made during sessions at Olympic Sound Studios during May 26th-29th.

There were 10 songs on the release by the young crop of successful artists at the time including Lennon/McCartney, Smokey Robinson, Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and Bacharach/David. An eleventh track was also recorded - Try a Little Bit (written by John B Sebastian) but only had a limited released as a single.
